Iceland is in the midst of a bizarre political scandal after a person working in a Reykjavik bar overheard several opposition politicians discuss various female members of parliament and their ‘looks.’ The barman recorded the conversation on his phone and leaked the recording.
The scandal is named Klausturgate, as it was taped in a bar called Klaustur, which is near the Icelandic parliament.
Most discussed was current Culture and Education Minister Ms Lilja Alfredsdottir who with her pale skin and blond hair looks very Nordic indeed.
The six politicians involved in the discussion, five men and one woman, all thought that Ms Alfredsdottir was ‘using others’ to gain power, but on one thing all the men agreed on: they all agreed in the audio, which has spread like wildfire in Iceland, that they would gladly have sex with her if the offer ever presented itself.
Current Culture minister Ms Alfredsdottir appeared on national TV yesterday and was asked about the scandal which has captured the Icelandic nation for weeks now.
She said: “I experience this as violence.”
“They are thugs. I’m telling you this is quite clear in my mind. … I just couldn’t believe it. That men could speak in this manner, and I underline that this is definitely violence.”
She said that none of the men have called her, and furthermore stated that their decision to continue being members of Parliament “shows disrespect. I don’t think they grasp the seriousness of the situation. I believe that strong individuals would have shown regret, would have shouldered responsibility for what was said.”
“When I saw the picture, I was startled. I found it uncomfortable to see his face. That’s when I realized that I had been viciously attacked. I will not accept this. That’s why I have also appeared here [for the interview]. Many people have wanted to discuss this matter with me. I just want to make it perfectly clear that this behavior of theirs is unacceptable. We do not want Icelandic society to be like this. This is also for the country’s daughters and mothers. We don’t want to read this about somebody.”
A poll shows that 80% of Icelanders believes that the six politicians should resign, including the woman who participated in the discussions.
